The RODE PinMic is a discreet lavalier/lapel microphone with an innovative pin-through design that is not only easier to conceal than a traditional lapel microphone, but provides greater mounting versatility.
Comprised of a cabled backplate and a removable omni-directional capsule head, the PinMic is easily mounted onto any clothing or fabric by simply pushing the backplate pins through the back of the fabric and sliding the capsule into place on the front. The microphone backplate and cable are hidden behind the fabric, and the capsule head can be easily disguised, covered or decorated to further conceal the microphone.
The PinMic capsule is discrete at only 9mm deep and 11mm in diameter, and is supplied with both a black and an unpainted silver mesh head that can be further camouflaged by painting.The microphone easily mounts through any fabric 1.5~3.5mm(0.006~0.14") thick without any damage to clothing. The regular PinMic is available for mounting on standard fabrics (up to 1.5mm/0.006" thick).The microphone capsule is connected via a 1.2m (4') shielded, detachable Kevlar reinforcedcable that has been rigorously strain tested to ensure reliable performance.
